UK Woman With ME Models And Dances With Her Wheelchair In "George At Asda" Ad To Show Ambulatory Wheelchair Users Exist

Woman with ME models and dances with her wheelchair in George at Asda ad to show ambulatory wheelchair users exist
Kate Stanforth lives with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) – a condition that is also known as chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
Her symptoms started when she was 14, as one morning she woke up barely able to move.
Now 25, Kate, from Northumberland, uses a wheelchair most of the time to get around.
She describes herself as an ambulatory wheelchair user, which means that she is able to take some steps but needs her wheelchair to help ease fatigue and pain.
Often people, like Kate, who are able to get out of their wheelchairs are discriminated against because people accuse them of not needing their chair or faking being ill.
